Issue Navigator Query Question

Is there a way to search a field by masking?

I have two fields and i just want names starting with DEVX. I have tried quotes and asterisk DEVX* . Is there a way to do it in this query? These are custom fields Version Picker type JIRA 5.2.4

project = XXXXXX and "Target Release" = "DEVX" or "Fixed In Version/s" = "DEVX"

Hi KP11,

The script runner plugin has some features to extend the JIRA JQL capabilities:

For instance, let's say I want to find all the project that start with DEVX. Then this will be my JQL query:

project in projectMatch("^DEVX")

If I want all issues with a fixed version starting with DEVX:

fixVersion in versionMatch("^DEVX")

Of course you can also combine queries with standard JQL logic:

project in projectMatch("^DEVX") AND fixVersion in versionMatch("^DEVX")

Hope this helps?!

The parameters for the script runner JQL functions are just normal regular expressions. This page gives more information about the script runner JQL functions:
